Erin Robinsong

Erin Robinsong is a poet and interdisciplinary artist working with ecological imagination. Her debut collection of poetry, Rag Cosmology, won the 2017 AM Klein Prize for Poetry and was described in the Globe & Mail as “an intimacy of ecological identities as wild, sensual and rhythmic as the cosmos,” by Canisia Lubrin. Her work has been published in Forging, Effects, Lemon Hound, Vallum, The Capilano Review, and Regreen: New Canadian Ecological Poetry, among others, and she has a chapbook forthcoming with House House Press.

Osculations on a Theory of Islands, a performance writing collaboration with Kathleen Brown, was presented at the Conference on Ecopoetics and the & NOW Festival of New Writing. Collaborative performance works with Hanna Sybille Müller and Andréa de Keijzer include: This ritual is not an accident (2016); Facing away from that which is coming (2017); revolutions (2018); and Polymorphic Microbe Bodies (forthcoming spring 2020). Originally from Cortes Island, Erin lives in Montréal.
